GRADES ARE UPDATED!!

Go and check your grades from the last two weeks! Make sure you've reviewed all feedback!

We Meet Online Every Thursday!

Don't forget that EVERY Thursday evening we will meet online for class to go over any assignments you might have questions on, to discuss upcoming assignments where you might need help, and to go over some of the topics currently being studied. You and your parents can join these sessions! And, just for showing up and participating you can earn 2 Bonus Points to be used on a discussion grade, an assignment grade, or a project grade!

Guaranteed to be EXCITING and FUN!

Tips for Success

We've discussed some times in the last few chats (see User Links Widget for recordings), but here is a summary:
  • Be Present: check course/email daily; watch chats, actively participate.
  • Be Organized: follow schedule; submit all assignments on time; read & follow directions.
  • Communicate: seek help regularly and early; read feedback; attend weekly class meetings.
  • Do your best, high quality work: engage your brain while working use the proper English and the language of engineering and technology!
